KBBG works with the TKET to raise awareness of Bucks New University’s Kitchen Design Degree

Dedicated to supporting independent kitchen specialists, the Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG) has offered its backing to the newly established Kitchen Education Trust (TKET) as the Trust seeks to provide quality education and scholarships to develop the kitchen industry.

The KBBG is working with the TKET to raise awareness of the foundation degree course in kitchen design, which is now in its second year at Bucks New University. The TKET has recently been formed to support the university in promoting the course and providing student scholarships.

The course provides a technically focused and knowledge based programme that is aimed at advancing skills, and improving career prospects, of those in the kitchen industry.

Craig Matson, Chairman of TKET, said: “The KBBG is well placed to support TKET through its first class connections with independent kitchen specialists and manufacturers, and we are most grateful for the help that the KBBG can offer the trust in creating greater awareness and providing potential avenues for sponsorship.”

Bill Miller, KBBG’s managing director (seen here), added: “We are eager to support the industry wherever we can. TKET provides valuable and accessible education to those looking to join the world of kitchen specialist retailing. The foundation degree course at Bucks New University is an exceptional start for the industry to be regarded as professional, career and design oriented.

“There is no doubt that improving education for the industry will raise the bar for kitchen designers and the industry as a whole.”
